The 19th annual Green tour will highlight positive solutions to save energy in Central Oregon and we want you to be part of it!
The Energy Challenge is seeking applicants to showcase their homes and buildings on the 2019 Green Tour. The Green Tour highlights how everyday people can save energy at home and at work and demonstrates that innovation on the cutting edge of sustainable design is happening right here in our local communities.
The tour will highlight both residential and commercial properties and will bring awareness to the opportunities that exist to build energy savings into the design of new buildings and how our existing building stock can be retrofitted to be more efficient.
This year the tour is seeking properties that put an emphasis on getting to zero energy use, utilizing solar plus storage, efficient ADUs, or sites that have installed or are planning for electric vehicle charging.
Home or commercial energy retrofits are an equally important part of the tour because they allow us to make a tangible connection to the kinds of upgrades that we can make in our very own homes and offices.
The tour will take place on September 28th, 2019 from 10:00-4:30. Those who are interested in applying are invited to fill out a quick and easy preliminary application by Friday, July 12th.
